CLOMP, STOMP, CHOMP!
by Dawn Young (100 words)

CLOMP CLOMP

There’s a noise and I’m no longer sleeping

and Yikes! there’s a shadow that’s crawling and creeping.

It’s hairy and scary and has a huge horn.

A monster that’ s growling, “Me want candy corn!”

It grunts and it groans and it’s down on all fours.

I toss my whole bag to the creature, “It’s yours!”

I’m under the covers and scared half to death.

I quietly peek out while holding my breath.

It enters. STOMP STOMP

Comes closer. CHOMP CHOMP

Hey wait!

That big beast with the horrible horn?

Is my sister, still dressed as a pink unicorn!

A BIG HUNGRY GRIN

by Dawn Young (97 words)

 

On Halloween night as their party drew near,

the minnows, preparing for tail tingling fear,

got dressed up in costumes; one fattened his fin,

flashed needle-knife teeth and a big hungry grin.

The party was rockin’ the old sunken ship,

still haunted by souls from an ill-fated trip.

Emerging at midnight, those piratey-ghosts,

spooked scale after scale off the guests and the hosts,

all desperately darting out into the dark,

until that wise minnow disguised as a shark,

circled the ghosts, ‘til the ghosts fled in fright,

leaving the minnows to party all night!

THE SQUEAK, THE CREAK & THE CAT by Dawn Young

In a haunted old house, a small mouse that went squeak

scurried about on a floor that went creak.

That creak woke the cat, all scraggly and black,

who wanted that mouse for his Halloween snack.

He chased that small mouse, while his claws sliced and slashed,

leaving the pumpkins all gutted and gashed.

That small harmless mouse, now ravenous too,

escaped up a broomstick and into some brew.

After a fizzle, a sizzle and BOOM,

out popped a mouse-monster as big as the room.

That beastly-like creature, eyeballing the cat,

swiped and then kitty just vanished…

like that.

Gulp!
